Trying to install Korora 21 but haning.


I've been testing out a couple of LiveDVD systems and I like Korora 21. I'm now trying to install this distro but the Anaconda Installer does not seem to be working.

Each time I get to the screen with the keyboard, date/time and installation destinations. The Data/time and INstallation destinations options have a white box around them. The Date/Time shows a message "Restoring Hardware time" or something like that and the Installation Destination is showing a message "Probing Storage".

I've let it sit for about 10 minutes and nothing changes. I've tried clicking on the Date/Time option and the Installation Destination option with no luck. When you hover over the Installation Destination option it shows "No Disks Selected".

Can someone help me with this please? I really like the LiveDVD and would like to give it a go.

Hi Jim...

I noticed your thread over at the Korora forum here.

Out of curiosity, have you tried connecting another hard drive (like a regular disk hard drive, not SSD,) to your system to see if the problem can be duplicated? What is the brand and model of your hard drive?

Regards...

I figured out that the problem is probably because I was installing it from a DVD. I figured out how to get it to install, which involved, going in, quitting, going in, quitting and then going in and waiting. I think that really I just wasn't waiting long enough at the country screen. I tried again, waited a few minutes and then went in and it worked.

Cool, glad you got it working.

If you would, please mark this thread as solved.
